What does it do and how does it work?
Stormfinder is a little utility that requests non-unicast packet statistics from
all interfaces of a network device using SNMP. After requesting the number of
incoming NU-packets (i.e. broadcasts and multicasts) it does so again after 10
seconds and calculates the difference. Excessively high numbers of NU-packets in
this time interval indicate a network loop which should be investigated. In the
first column of the table, the OID is shown where the number after the last dot
is the interface number.
Simply enter the IP address and SNMP community of your device into the corresponding
fields and click on "Check Now". After ten seconds or so you will see the results
in the "Delta"-column of the table. Check for excessive NU-packets.
SNMP is using UDP and a loop in the network is causing many packets to be delayed
or to get lost. Therefore, under certain circumstances this software may not yield
the desired results.
